Twitter reacts as Lionel Messi misses from the spot against Iceland

Heimir Hallgrimsson has defended Iceland's surprise qualification for the World Cup.

"You don't want to disappoint people you know, and it's nearly everybody, the whole nation, " he said. The tactician believes that they enjoy the reward of what has been a continuous evolution. I think we deserved to win.

Croatia only played twice in the immediate build-up to Russian Federation and after putting in a respectable performance in a 2-0 defeat to Brazil, they then came out and beat Senegal.

"I did my homework, I looked at a lot of penalties by Messi, and I also looked at how I had been behaving in previous penalties, so I tried to get into their mindset, how they would be thinking about me. They probably would open a little bit more and we could get more space".

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli took the surprising decision to reveal his starting line-up for his side's World Cup Group D opener against Iceland in a news conference ahead of Saturday's game, picking Sergio Aguero ahead of Gonzalo Higuain.

The boss added that he has no magic formula to stop Leonel Messi. "When a genius is there in the team, the coach's job is to organise the team around him", Sampaoli said.

But those in Messi's camp have an out following Argentina's 1-1 draw with Iceland: The tiny Nordic nation did the same thing to Ronaldo two years ago at the Euros.

When asked about who might light up the World Cup, Carlos wrote in his column for the Sunday Mirror: "People talk about Messi, Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Neymar, but for me, Willian is right up there". We will try to do it [stop him] as a team.

Well, tell that to the army of reactionary twitter trolls who jumped on Messi's penalty miss like a lion would jump on a wounded gazelle.
